      I'll always save them until I have 250000, then buy the 4k bonus :)

      I'm really hoping to have the discipline to save mine this year.. 4k bonus is doable in a year for me.

      It's also like a reserve bank roll. playing satellites at a 35% win rate or so to make emergency cash. I rebuilt my roll with them last time.

      Is that the best option if you want the max value out of your points?

      @Gary, Good old NYR's :D You will never be able to get mass FPP's anyway. Stars has it in for you :P


      Hopefully the RNG will be more forgiving next month!

      Got about 80k atm, waiting for price drop of cadooz because they have the best fpp/$ ratio after the supernova deals (but I dont have sn)

      :rage: :(

      I think i will never get so much points.

      I allways play the 235 Sats to sunday storm, but never cashed. :rage:

      Mostly out by a bad beat.

      But by now I will keep them too. Let's see, how much I can make this year. I think 1k. :D

      This is probably a stupid question thats been answered many times, but for someone playing micros that doesnt make many fpps, are FPP satellites the best value for money? I usually buy the $50 silver bonuses but im sure ther must a better way.
      $4k SN bonus is a bit out of reach for me :(

      Hallo!

      There are no stupid question, only stupid answers. ;)

      I think, the satellites are the best way to “change” your FPPs into $. If you do not want to play SNGs, you cann sell them here inside the forum. Or you contact me and I will buy them. :)

      OK, you need a little bit of luck to get the $11, but most times you will get more then the 1,6 Cent/FPP. You get 4,7 Cent/FPP at the sats, that means, you only need to come itm every ~4th time to get a better $/FPP rate.

      Hallo!

      Do not hesitate to ask your questions. If you want inside the forum or you can also add me as a friend at the com tool.

      It is your decision. :)

      Interesting. I read about it quick and still confused. I don't think I'll reach supernova this year but have almost 80k FPP to spend.

      I see the tourny tickets here: http://www.pokerstars.com/vip/store/?cat=online-tournaments

      So lets say I buy the $11 sunday storm, how do I make this into tournament $ and trade it? What items in the Stars store are actually tournament $ which are tradeable?

      I also read this:
      Note: tickets are non-transferable, non-exchangeable and non-refundable. This ticket must be used by the buyer to play in the designated event. If you register and then unregister from a target tournament, your ticket will be returned; you will not receive Tournament Dollars (T$).

      Hallo!

      I do not speak about the tickets you can buy in the shop.

      Inside the stars software you have the following way: SNGs/satellites/FPP or nearly like this.
      There you have the chance to get for 235FPP a ticket to the Sunday storm. You have to play a hyper 6max SNG and the first two gets a ticket. With this ticket you can unregister from the tourney and you will get T$.
      Another option is, if you register to a SNG with 20 Players for 210FPP. In this case the first 6 will get a ticket.
